The included file is a GUI prototype for a Java project!
It reveals some rendering faults that still exist in Amaya
after the spec for forms and css1 has been settled for
years ...
1] legend element width is not being calculated correctly
it fills its container rather than being determined by margin/padding
and width of the contents !!!
2] input checkboxes are not calculating width default correctly
3] input buttons use background color outside the border area
 instead of using the container background color

note the different view in other browsers which are consistent
in their interpretation .... --
